Conference Programme

Creating impact through enterprise education – what works?

Dr. Charles Knight, Associate Director of Edge Hill University Business School will be leading along with Ruth Lowbridge  a one-day workshop on Enterprise Education.

At the event, Charles will be talking about how he embedded enterprise in his teaching in a high impact but low cost way by removing lectures and seminars.

The event (hosted at London South Bank University on the 6th April) will consider institutional approaches to developing enterprising pedagogies. As well as focusing on how to transform institutional culture and create an enterprise education strategy, the event will also explore ways to recognise and reward enterprise and entrepreneurship. In particular, it will provide an opportunity for University leadership teams to reimagine their approach to employability and develop an enterprise education strategy through pedagogies that nurture the student as entrepreneur.

Aims & Outcomes
* Explore current thinking on approaches to enterprise education
* Develop institutional strategies to promote enterprise and entrepreneurship
* Consider models of good practice and the Enterprise Framework
* Gain insights into the work of the IOEE

Who should attend?

The Summit is aimed at leadership teams, including Heads of Department and Deans, as well as careers advisers, employability coordinators and employment services managers. It will also be of benefit to individual academics who are looking to enhance their approach to enterprise and entrepreneurship.
